    Is this the end of the road for Kubuntu?

      I hope they squash a lot of the annoying bugs by then, but somehow I don't see it happening in a month.

            Me too. I have been putting off switching to another distro for a while now.

              Why would this be the end for Kubuntu?

                Kubuntu's future is now being put under the microscope. In particular, theKubuntu 15.10 Alpha 1 release notes mention at the top, "The Kubuntu team are committed to releasing 15.10 in October. Updates, bug fixes and future releases are currently uncertain." Basically the official statement is that the future past October's release of Kubuntu 15.10 is uncertain for this KDE flavor of Ubuntu.

                I would also like to know; how is the project/distro doing? Will we get to see the next Kubuntu LTS?

                  I'm running a dedicated Radeon 6870, though I have an APU (A10-5800K). After updating to 5.4.2 yesterday, the system freezes at sddm. I can restart it from a virtual terminal so that it at least allows me to input my password, but after hitting enter it seems to work in the background but doesn't give me my desktop. I can get into the desktop off my onboard graphics, oddly. I've just installed catalyst from the repos (fglrx-updates) and need to restart to see if that works, though I'd rather not use these shite drivers.

                    I had to switch to the xorg-edgers ppa about a month ago because my taskbar and the lockscreen would freeze immediately after logging in. I could still click on the taskbar to open apps, but of course it's a nightmare if you don't know what is currently opened. With the xorg-edgers ppa at least the taskbar is working again, however the lockscreen is now translucent or black. And I can't watch HTML5 videos in fullscreen.
